deal. that's what senator harry reid tells reporters. talks on the fiscal cliff appear to be hitting a wall as democrats and the gop remain stuck on the latest offers from each camp. the gop is stuck on extending bush-era tax breaks for the wealthy, and republicans say the president is failing to reduce government spending. "where are the president's spending cuts? the longer the white house slow-walks this process, the closer our economy gets to the fiscal cliff." "we have been calling on the speaker to bring forth a middle-income tax cut now for a very long time - in fact, since last summer when it passed the united states senate." here's a side-by-side check of where they stand: the president's plan calls for a raising $1.6 trillion in revenue by boosting tax rates on the incomes above $200,000 for individuals and $250,000 for couples. president obama also recommends $400 billion in spending cuts. representative boehner's calls for $800 billion in new revenue, $600 billion in savings from medicare and medicaid, and $300 billion from other domestic programs. in a big slip for small

senate majority leader harry reid. both democrats wanted to make sure president obama will not freeze them out of fiscal cliff negotiations. far from frozen, some set of republicans appear to be warming to higher tax rates on households earning more than $250,000. if and only if that leads to benefit cuts in health care entitlements like medicare and medicaid. >> give the president the 2% increase that he's talking about, the right increase on the top 2%, and all of a sudden, the shift goes back to entitlements. >> but house republicans, the key to any fiscal cliff deals remains suspicious. >> the president wants the rates to go up, that doesn't solve the problem. we don't want to be back here in another year, in another ten years answering the same questions. >> reporter: the republican co-chairman of the deficit reduction commission said higher tax rates are inevitable. >> if anybody out there who's, quote, rich doesn't think their taxes go up, the drinks are on me. i'll cover it. >> reporter: mr. obama and house democrats are open to making wealthier taxpayers pay more in medicare

who ran against harry reid, not the greatest track record in the world. he said health care would be the president's waterloo. yes. the president suffered a heavy midterm defeat, a tsunami of republicans coming in and taking back the house of representatives. but after that, the president emerging victorious. he's going on to the heritage foundation. came to washington to do good. he's going to end up doing well over there. >> su susan, the supreme court taking up the issue of gay marriage. the majority of americans support this. what about the republican party? >> it will probably take longer than it should, unfortunately. but this is alleges a generational thing. i think that's where we've seen the increase in support of marriage equality is from the younger generation. it's almost a no-brainer. so if the republican party wants to start expanding and reaching younger voters, then they really have to at least understand that there is a point of view there that they have to understand and respect. >> okay. morris, your burning question after a break. substitution. ♪ i'd like to

with the republicans and harry reid in the senate. you're just not seeing it. >> you don't see enough of it. curiously, the markets -- investors are actually increasing their exposure which is kind of contrarian to your point. i do believe to julia's point, you'll see a receding or retreat in that attitude over the next several days and few week ifs we can't get ourselves closer. i remain optimistic. the president wants a legacy and his legacy depends on this. and two proposals have been put forth. they resemble each other in terms of the amount they've asked for. i give republicans credit. they understand revenue has to be part of the deal. the question remains whether it's marginal rates or limiting deductions. adults should be able to come together and get that deal done. >> what happens here in the short term and long term. the short-term thing's not going to be much of a solution. >> no, i don't think so. and mark halperin, you talk about these deals possibly being $2 trillion. we went $5 trillion in debt over the past four or five years. another $5 trillion in debt over the next four to five yea
